What's the weirdest thing you've had to do to get a job?

I had to go to lunch with the boss, when we started dating he told me that he used to stop by the gym for a few minutes, so I agreed. When we got there he said also nothing for a while, and I told him I don't have a bathroom suite and he said you don't need one, we all swim naked, do you agree with that? He told me if we couldn't just skip and go back to the office. I told him there was no problem, so we went in and stayed for about two hours. He explained that it was a team operation, driving back and forth to California and that his 21-year-old son would be my co-pilot. Now I was in my 40s at the time and thi

He told me if we couldn't just skip and go back to the office. I told him there was no problem, so we went in and stayed for about two hours. He explained that it was a team operation, driving back and forth to California and that his 21-year-old son would be my co-pilot. He was now in his 40s at the time and thought this wouldn't work too well, but he called his son and to my surprise he only had one pair of flip flops. Hw looked at me and told his dad that he didn't want anyone shy around him, I'd like to take my clothes off and walk around the store and look at the truck, so I did. He told me that I was only the third to make it this far and that most never made it past the gym. The other trailer only made one trip. His dad called me and told me that his son would be in charge and I quickly said that there is no deal, that he does not have enough experience to be in charge, they talked for a minute and then they said he was fine. Then came the pay, which was low and I told him I needed at least twenty more cents per mile. and he said no way. I said it was okay, I put on my clothes and left. This was one of those jobs that I didn't think would work, but two days later he called me and asked if I would settle for fifteen cents and I said no, twenty more is the least I will do. He said once again that he just couldn't do it. The next day he called again and said he was fine. So he's fine, and he asked me how long it would take to get there and I told him about 2 hours. We took 4 trips before I told him it wasn't working. I agreed to make two more trips to resolve an advisory.

Go diving in the dumpster ...

My son and I used to work for Radio Shack. We had just moved to a new location and during the initial audit, we discovered that 3 cell phones were missing. This was serious, a possible end-of-career problem for my manager.

He was worried they might have been thrown out with the moving boxes, so he ordered all the employees to gather early Saturday morning in clothes from I don't care if they get screwed up to go through the big roll-off. dumpster that had been rented for construction and trash removal.

He was worried they might have been thrown out with the moving boxes, so he ordered all the employees to gather early Saturday morning in clothes from I don't care if they get screwed up to go through the big roll-off. dumpster that had been rented for construction and trash removal. So five of us completely emptied the full container and then refilled it after checking all the boxes.

The cell phones were later found in the back room, in a secluded corner.

My son still talks about getting paid to go trash diving.
